I know that by June 1st, they had already started working on the floor above the transfer. That was 27 days ago which would mean that 7floors should have gone up since then, which is not the case. At most, they have been on a 4.5 - 5 day schedule. Maybe the first few floors after the transfer will be a little slower and eventually will reach the 4 day schedule. Anyway, I hope you are right about the floor schedule. My eagerness to see this rise has made it seem slow.

Knowing Trump's personal penchant for gold, I'm not shocked...but someone please tell me this is only a temporary color...

To soon to tell - could it be a protective coating? On other stainless applications the coating has been white. I went back to the first page to look at the renderings and you can't tell. In fact some of the river facing columns are square rather that round as they built them. So we know that design changes happen. But dear God not Vegas Glitz.

Warped glass? Look at all the curves and distortions in the reflections.

There is NO WAY gold columns could have snuck through permitting. For the love of god. I will forever detest this tower if they introduce one more ******* material or color to an already bloated palate!!!

At any rate... a lovely shot of the toilet-bowl:
